Rome Questions

Rome Questions

We will be traveling to Italy at the end of this month. I have been researching 24/7 but several questions I could not find answers to.

1)When using a money belt, how do you get your money out of it to pay for things if you are in public?

2)Is there an age restriction for children in restaurant/bars? I know when we were in London my girls could not go into pubs. They are 15 and 17 now.

3)I know you are supposed to have ID on you, but is a license okay or do you need your passport? I wanted to leave the passports in our room locked up.

4)Does anyone know if the tourist offices are open on Sun?

I saw two conflicting answers. We are arriving late Sat. night and wanted to purchase a Roma pass on Sunday.

Thank you for any help. We are very excited to be visiting Italy for our first time.

1) Put money for the day iny our bag and large bills/passports/tickets/credit cards in your moneybelt (we usually leave passports and tickets in the safe). If you need to acess the moneybelt go to the toilet or turn into a corner with someone 'watching your back'.

2) Cafe type bars and resteraunts generally accept all children. Unless you want to go to a nightclub your girls will be fine.

3) We usually carry a photocopy of the information in the passports and our drivers licence.

4)Don't know, sorry.

Hope this helps. Have a great trip.

You don't have to go to a tourist office to get a Roma Pass. They are also sold at the museums covered by the Pass. However, it now costs €25 which makes it rather poor value unless your first two (free) sites will be Colosseum/Forum and Galleria Borghese.
